Arianna Grace is working her way up to emerge as one of the top prospects of WWE’s developmental territory, NXT returning to the ring after missing time due to injury. While she does not use her family lineage as a part of her character, many are aware of the wrestling family she comes from.

The self-proclaimed ‘Miss NXT’ and pageant queen is the daughter of WWE Legend Santino Marella. He was considered a captivating WWE superstar during his prime, majorly for his comedic antics, impressive in-ring style, and building a special bond with the audience.

Moreover, the Milan Miracle won the WWE Intercontinental Championship on his very first night on RAW back in 2007, when he defeated the destructive Umaga with some assistance from his rival at the time, Bobby Lashley.

Arianna recently took to her X to pen down a heartfelt message for her legendary dad on the occasion of his 50th birthday, where she credited the positive impact of Santino on her life and even mentioned the childlike spirit that made him a beloved character among the WWE Universe.


“To the most loving and adorable dad a girl could ask for… happy half a century. Even at 50, your childlike adventurous spirit and positivity are unmatched. Thank you for always believing 💕 I love you very much @milanmiracle.”

While Arianna Grace is currently on the path to carving out her own legacy, one separate from her father’s, however, it would be interesting to see if she adopts her lineage onscreen, potentially when she is ready to be called up to the main roster.
